Unable to See Workgroup PC's

  BAC1-11 19:21 20 Mar 2005

I am running XP Home with a Linksys BEFSR41 router.

I can connect to other PC's through 'My Network Places' but if I click on 'View Workgroup Computers' I get the message that 'The w/group is not accessable. You might not have permission to use the network....'. I am logged on as an administrator.

The confusing thing is it work fine last night and this morning. I haven't changed the config or anything today, just turned the PC Off and back on again.

I tried down power the router but that didn't help.

If you post to the network forum you may get results.

yep. It is most probably a firewall problem. what firewall are you running? You can configure some for networks.
